Losing big pots and winning small ones
I seem to do quite well for a while and spend a few hours building a nice profit only to lose it in one big hand.
One example was today I had a straight 8-queen, the only hand that could beat me was king 10. Should I have got away from the big pot when this player wasn't a tight player and had already lost a lot of money with bad bets and calls?
Other times Iv lost my whole buy in after making a good profit from set over set situations with no straight / flushes possibilities. Another time my whole buy in was lost king high flush to ace high flush.
Basically I lose a lot the the second nuts. Should I be folding these to big bets? I always think what are the odds
of them having the only hand that can beat me lol. I'm also quite new to poker!
